After completing a raunchy number Sheela Ki Jawaani, Katrina Kaif is all set to go for a Meena Kumari style makeover for a special qawalli number in Tees Maar Khan.
The actress, who plays a wannabe item girl in the Farah Khan directed movie, will be accompanied by Salman Khan and co-star Akshay Kumar in the song. Salman is making a special appearance in the song. Katrina will be seen as grace personified a la Meena Kumari form 'Pakeezah', says the director. "Katrina would be seen in an altogether different avtar in this 'qawalli'. While Akshay and Salman can be expected to have a lot of fun with this track, it belongs to Katrina as she would surprise the audience," Farah said.
"Katrina's look has been modeled on 'Pakeezah' though I don't wish to spoil the fun by disclosing more than that as of now," said Farah, adding that the 'qawalli' will have a quintessential Mumbaiyya feel to it with a 'masala mix' feel to it.
It is Farah's third film after Main Hoon Naa and Om Shanti Om, both of which starred her best friend Shah Rukh Khan.
Farah says the film will be complete after the song. In fact quite some emphasis is being put on the way Katrina would make an entry in the song.
With the first half of the song is dominated by Salman and Akshay, the young woman would arrive in the middle of the 'qawalli' and would join the boys in all the fun right till the end.
"Do you remember Yeh Ishq Ishq Hai Ishq Ishq, the 'qawalli' from Barsaat Ki Raat which was created 50 years back? It still sounds so fresh. The 'qawalli' in Tees Maar Khan, though not exactly like that, is on the same lines," Farah said.
Asked whether Akshay was okay with the idea of introducing Salman Khan in the song, Farah said, "When I shared the idea with Akshay, he was game for it. He had a big smile on his face when I said that the song would feature the two of them along with Katrina."
Katrina has already impressed with her moves in songs like 'Zara Zara Touch Me' and 'Khwab Dekhe Jhoothe Moothe' (Race), 'Main Tera Dhadkan Teri' (Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani), 'Paisa Paisa' (De Dana Dan) and 'Teri Ore' (Singh Is Kinng).
